Thanks, Amanda, for your kind reception for "consolations." Speaking of nailing it, I listened yesterday to your reading of "Poem for a Poet.": Now that was nailed! both the poem and your delivery, really fine.

Thank you Amanda for visiting. "Sleeping on Route 110" and leaving an encouraging comment. It helps.
Thanks, Amanda, for reading and commenting upon "Morning Gift.," which has subsequently been deep-sixed. Too much spleen for such congenial company.
Thank you for your feedback on "Mother" as well as the others.

Many thanks for your comment on Mon in the forest, Amanda!
Thank you for the read and comment, Amanda.
Thank you Amanda for visiting, A Child's Veil. I have been hoping more parents would be upfront with the truth and tell their kids like it really is, especially at an age where the child can make their own choice on how to go forward.

best wishes to you in your work,
Thank you for your wonderful comment on A Writer's Ramble. I'm so glad you liked it...
You have also raised a very valid point regarding the closing line. Much appreciated.
Amanda, thanks for your comments on Scar... very gratifying, as I'm trying to move in all the directions you named... :)
Thank you, Amanda for the wonderful and thoughtful comment on the rabbit micro/poem! You are so very kind and exquisitely generous. I will definitely write something more up to date in your honor without those blasted number! Pax, Amy
Thanks, Amanda, for reading and commenting on "Proximity." Nice to have your endorsement.

Hi Amanda, thanks for reading Sliding Windows, and thanks for the comments, too. fos.
Thank you Amanda for your thoughtful comment about the Handshake micro...you rock!!! :)
Thanks for commenting on Anchored Leaves. That was just what I was hoping for!
Amanda, thanks for your comment on OCD MAN!
Thanks Amanda, for your comment and suggestion on "Encore." Interesting choices we make when trying to fulfill the requirements of a prompt. If I work this story further, I will definitely take another look at that first sentence!
Amanda, thanks for reading and commenting on "Blood or Kisses". I'm glad it worked for you!
Amanda, I appreciate the comments on Pretend. Thank you.
Thank you for your comment on "Out of Uniform". I think the human is made up, in part at least, of objects and our relationships with them.
I never properly thanked you for sharing that music link at "So freaking tired." Excellent!
Thank you for your comments and fave on Hero Song. I'm glad those lines resonated with you. They were hard to write at the time. Or easy to write, but hard to leave on the page. :-)
Thank you, Amanda, for your kind response to "Saturday Housekeeping".
Thanks, Amanda, for letting me know you liked 'Breaking in Print.'
Thanks for your comment on Spinning. I've been reading a recent anthology of essays on the Eco-Ability Movement, and what you said about agency makes me think some of that is coming through in this series.
Thanks for your comments on 'The Worst Girl's Best Day' - I love that you felt you understood Gerry although you are anything but a 'big girl!'
Thanks for the kind words on "Invoking Fire", Amanda!
Thanks for the comments on "A Little Idea".
Thank you for your comment on "Toothed and Thorny". That piece, and "The Object of Desire" are part of sequence I'm working on of monologues from the perspective of things (which I'm defining as anything that would ordinarily take the pronoun "it).
Also, since you're interested in Joyce, you might be interested in the project I'm facilitating at http://openjoyce.com/sites/opening-ulysses/
Thank you for reading and commenting on Michelle from Southport, Amanda. I think I live for comments sometimes. Which of your stories has the inhuman character?
Thanks for your comment on Becoming an Author. It looks like you're on your way.
Thank you again for your comment on "Diving In." Writing that opening sentence was actually the last thing I did before posting it.
Thank you, Amanda. Appreciate it!
Hi Amanda. Thanks for the kind words on "The Bedroom Seems like the World." I'm glad you liked it.
Thank you for your kind comments about My Great Uncle Jerry, Amanda. I tried writing that poem a dozen times before thinking of using the villanelle form. Nothing worked. Then, of course, the form made me crazy--so I really appreciate what you had to say!
Thank you for reading and commenting on The Most Beautiful Lady, Amanda.
We dragons need to stick together, although we are rather solitary in our flight. Thank you so much for reading my poem, Don't Forgive Me. It's very much appreciated.
Thanks, Amanda, for commenting on Wild Horses, though 'terribly, terribly clever' can be taken by me in terribly different ways. Music plays a part in many of my stories. I'm glad to see your interest in that connection, too.
Amanda thanks for commenting on Dog Blog!
Dear Amanda, thank you very much for your comment on Demon, much appreciated. I look forward to reading your work.
Thank you, Amanda.
Fish Eye: All really interesting and wise thoughts to ponder, the similarities and differences of skill-building and sustaining in all these arenas. Earlier in life I was a painter and found that taking breaks and just looking for awhile improved my work more than constant practice. There also may be stages in the development of an art or skill requiring more or less "doing."
Thank you for your comment and validation on Amends.
Amanda, warm thanks for reading and commenting "What the heart is". Much appreciated. /Janice
Very funny comment on Blogger.
Amanda: Here is one of the most beautiful eulogies I have ever read. It was written for and about Rebecca. You will know this remarkable little girl a little better if you read it: http://www.panspermia.org/waters20010107.htm
Thank you for reading "Menthol." And welcome to Fictionaut!
I really liked your comment on Snowflake. I don't think the Holocaust filtered down unless parent made strong efforts to do so. I was the opposite. I protected my children from knowing about it as long as possible.
Dialogue stories are lots of fun. When I think about it, mine always involve two lovers and a possessive animal. Yes, of course it has a lot to do with Carver. I was just trying to give Con a hard time for pointing it out.
Welcome to Fictionaut. Glad you are here.
